I took a little trip out to the International Gem & Jewelry Show in San Mateo today, which was quite an overwhelming experience. The event center was packed with row upon row of sparkly wares, from gemstones and geodes to twinkling strings of beads and bedazzled jewelry adorned with diamonds and amber. It was hard to decide where to focus my attention, but I was excited to be let behind the curtains to the wholesale section with my seller’s permit.
I picked up four different types of sterling silver chain so I can start making enamel necklaces in addition to my enamel earrings. Stay tuned to see my new my new designs.
